Geoarcheology Research Associates, Inc. (GRA) is a specialty firm dedicated to providing a broad range of cultural resources and archaeological services to both public and private sector agencies. Our primary market is in the domestic development sector–governmental and private–where we apply earth science strategies to determine archaeological sensitivity for preservation compliance. We have a long history of experience in compliance law that enables us to address archaeological sensitivity in the timeliest and most efficient manner possible, and our clients include large CRM firms, as well as primary contracting agencies and development interests. Our secondary market is international, where we co-ordinate large-scale research and management projects in developing nations that are beginning to formulate heritage and conservation programs. GRA combines technical expertise in environmental archaeology and cultural resources management with a thorough understanding of the research and heritage interests of host nations. These projects are typically undertaken with universities and foreign governments, often with the sponsorship of international scientific and development organizations.
GRA’s unique specialty in the earth sciences stresses innovative strategies and sampling schemes, instead of labor intensive survey and excavation. We believe this is the wave of the future as designers and planners increasingly focus on higher levels of efficiency and imaginative solutions to traditional cultural resources problems.
